Thanks for posting your query.
In heart and kidney related problems it is always advisable to use less of table salt to decrease the complications and to keep your blood pressure well under control.
Even if you decrease the use of salt, you will get the necessary sodium from vegetables and fruits.
You need to restrict your daily salt intake to less than 3grams per day.
You can also use a low sodium salt available in the market in restricted amounts.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
